Never having met a marketable need it didn't like and rush to exploit, Wal-mart has moved into the most reliable market of all – death. Now along with your beer and meds and lawn chairs, you can get, at Every Day Low Prices, the casket of your choice. The 14 varieties, listed online under "For The Home," include Supreme Distinction, Executive Privilege, Lovely In All Ways, Dad/Mom Remembered, and, for $1,099, American Patriot, whose "American spirit glows in the embroidered front panel 'Stars and Stripes.'" Alas, no gift options or customer reviews, yet.
